Other things to note

For Kentucky Derby weekend, a 3-night minimum is required. Typically our guests will check in on Thursday and check out on Sunday, but it's totally up to you!

As mentioned, I have 5 hens. Assuming it's not the dead of winter and they are not "molting", I'll do my best to ensure there are fresh eggs on hand.

I had an opportunity to stay at Jeff's house with a few of my friends, as we explored Kentucky's Bourbon Trail. The communication was great and the house was fantastic - perfect for our needs. Clean, comfortable, roomy and a great location - within walking distance to several eclectic neighborhood restaurants, bars and shops.

The Hen House was a great overnight stop for our little family. My daughter was enthralled by the chickens scurrying around the back yard and after a long day in the car we all enjoyed sitting on the back porch watching them. The house was clean and well appointed, easy to find and in a nice, old neighborhood. We relaxed in front of Netflix for the evening before heading out early for the next leg of our cross country trip. We loved how easy it was to get ahold of Jeff and how quickly he replied to accommodate our needs. We'd certainly stay again.

Jeff's house was quiet and inviting while also being very close to a lot of exciting restaurants and bars in the Schnitzelburg neighborhood. He was very easy to contact and always responded immediately, and the bed was very comfortable and soft. Will stay again next time we visit Louisville!
